Brothers and Texoma

Isaac and Jackson are becoming quite the force to be reckoned with. By themselves, they each demand a certain degree of your attention that, if not given, utlimately creates a catastrophe that could (and have) involve paint, nakedness streaking down the street, and butcher knives to open go-gurts. They are also becoming best buds; somewhat of a dynamic duo. It is great to see them play football, do karate, or wrestle in the front room. Jackson hates to be left out of "big boy" stuff. He has to be right there doing whatever Kayla and Isaac are doing. He is fearless in trying anything once. "If they can do it, I can do it" seems to be his motto.
Isaac and Kayla are great about including him in whatever they are doing and Kayla is especially helpful as a big sister with whatever Jackson needs. He is still the baby of the family and I think that with his early challenges, Kayla and Isaac truly have a soft spot for him.
These pictures are from our hike last month again at Lake Texoma. We went last year and it was just as fun this year again. Isaac and Jackson got in the lake to build some great sand piles. One of them is the tail end of a snake that we saw that was warming on the rocks. That cut our cliff jumping time short once we saw him. He was at least 4 feet long. Uncle Dusty, can tell what kind of snake it is by his butt?
